If the allegation is true, that the student would be suspended if he did not attend, the school district was asking to be sued.If the allegation is correct, in my opinion, the school district stepped way out of line.Something doesn't add up it seems though...
I smell a rat here... there is more going on. Either that or the school superintendent is totally off his rocker. Even if I could legally require all students to attend, I wouldnt.Krispy
